Powerball Rolls, Mega Millions Pays Out This Weekend
July 8, 2013 – The Powerball jackpot survived another weekend drawing, rolling over from $70 to $80 million. Two lucky players became millionaires Saturday night.
Those two winning tickets, which matched the five white balls – 2, 13, 35, 36, and 52, but not the red Powerball 11 – were sold in Louisiana and Missouri.
The Mega Millions jackpot did not make it through the weekend; one ticket sold in Michigan matched all six numbers, winning the lucky ticket holder a whopping $79 million jackpot.
The Mega Millions winning numbers Friday night were 2, 23, 41, 47, 54, and the Mega Ball was 42.
Four other lucky Mega Millions players were able to match the five white balls, but missed the yellow Mega Ball. Their second tier prizes are worth $250,000 unless they added the Megaplier option, which would multiply that prize by four to $1 million.
Those second-tier prizes were won in California, Missouri, New York, and Ohio.
